In 2007 Real Clear Politics published an article detailing the uproar in congress over destroyed 'terror tapes'. In the article, Porter Goss places Madame Pelosi along with the top members of the intelligence committees at a 'virtual tour' of CIA interrogation facilities in 2002:
Their article described some of the background to last week's congressional uproar over the CIA's destruction of so-called "terror tapes" that had been made during harsh interrogations of captured al-Qaeda terrorists. It turned out that back in September 2002, four top members of the intelligence committees -- including Rep. Nancy Pelosi, who is now House speaker -- had been given a "virtual tour" of CIA interrogation facilities overseas. They heard descriptions of some of the harsh techniques that would be used, including the now-infamous practice known as waterboarding.
"Among those being briefed, there was a pretty full understanding of what the CIA was doing. And the reaction in the room was not just approval, but encouragement," former Rep. Porter Goss told the Post reporters. He attended the 2002 briefing, along with Pelosi, as chairman of the House intelligence committee. He later served from 2004 to 2006 as CIA director.
Shocking! The Speaker of the House knew and condoned the use of expanded interrogation techniques, such as waterboarding? Say it ain't so, Joe!
Nancy maintained her silence regarding these claims over the years, the leftosphere for the most part left the silence go unchallenged. Most recently, Madame Speaker put her world class oral skills to use in rebuffing a GOP charge that she had knowledge of EITs (Expanded Interrogation Techniques):
Without any proof one way or the other, this subterfuge and wordsmithing might have continued ad nauseam. There might be hope for us yet, a recently declassified CIA document sheds light on the Madam and her twisted tale.

So many of the dems are filthy liars and criminals that insist on keeping their seats while Republicans, at least, had the common courtesy to usually step down after being caught in lies and criminal activities.
Waterboard Pelosi. What does she know and when did she know it.
I’m pretty sure it’s in our Constitution that you can’t say, “Pelosi” and “Knowledge” in the same sentence.
I’m just sayin’...
I’d PAY to see THAT!!!
They don't think they are capable of committing a crime. They think their political posturing makes them immune from normal human morality.
Liberals are clad in the armor of good intentions.
Such men are dangerous.
I think Congress needs to hold hearings about Pelosi’s knowledge of the terrorist interviewing techniques - what did she know, and when did she know it?
Let’s bring her bony ass up on charges. Justice must be satisfied.
Can you say Pelosi and Psychobitch in the same sentence.
Yes. That’s allowed. And encouraged. :)
This woman always operates undercover and through lies.
Brainiac Claire Macaskill ( D-imwit MO ) was on Morning Joe the other day defending Pelosi.
She made Pelosi out to be a moron.
Pelosi was in the room “ without staff “ and therefore couldn’t be expected to understand the CIA briefing.
The sheeple who vote for her like it that way.
Anyone who support sucking brains out of half born babies has no standing when criticizing enhanced interrogation techniques.
Oh, Please. That’s apples and oranges. Those babies never ASKED to be born!
</HEAVY SARCASM> ;)
I don't even want to think about that!
Yes. By all means.
Think we have to go back to that “incident” where one of the Dems had a “paper” in the Senate vault. I think it was about objecting to some of this stuff...
“Republicans, at least, had the common courtesy to usually step down after being caught in lies and criminal activities.”
Or being caught making a statement that could easily be misinterpreted. Remember Trent Lott? Would a Democrat in his place EVER have stepped down?
